    What makes you vote an answer up or down?

    I rarely vote an answer up or down, because I truly believe everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion. However, that doesn't mean I have any problem voting down an answer that appears to be bashing people, or just outright rude. We are all here to be supportive of each others not to tear anyone down!

    I read the question, then I read the answer a person has given. Simply, if a person answers the question (whatever the answer given), I vote the answer up.

    On the other hand, if a person does not answer the question and is just commenting on the question, I leave it alone. Moreover, if a person makes fun of the question or disregards the question in some way, then I vote the answer down.

    If it is just mean, rude, or name calling I vote it down. Otherwise I only vote on my own questions and I vote all that answer the question up again unless someone just goes out of their way to be rude.

    I might vote an answer down it the person asks a decent question, and the person answering just gives some kind of nasty smart remark.  Or if the person asks a question about politics or religion and the person answering answers the question but then takes off and berates political parties, or Christians-outside the realm of the original question.

    I try not to vote it down if I disagree with the answer as everyone should be allowed their own opinion.

    I tend to vote answers up - especially if they are very good replies and helpful to a lot of folks. I don't usually vote them down.

    If someone has a different view to mine then that's okay. I don't see the point of asking a question only to get back responses that you like, then vote people down if they see things differently - there seems to be a lot of that on Hub Pages at the moment and it's a bit odd!!

    I vote a hub up based on the content it contains and the approach taken to present the facts on the topic being addressed.  I have never voted a hub down as the ones I have read does not present a picture where they should be.

      Hi Dennis, I meant to ask about the answers given by hubbers when a question is asked smile

    I tend to vote down an answer if it has nothing to do with the question, if it was rude, or mean. I will vote up an answer if it is a very good reply.

    I vote answers up if I think they are well written and give a genuine viewpoint on the subject matter in question.  I have never voted one down.  If I totally disagree, I just leave it alone and wander off to the next one.  Everyone has a right to their opinion.
